and the role of government. with mitt romney taking some sharp shots at the president's record these past four years. >> we're seeing right now is, in my view, a trickle down government approach which has government thinking it can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams and that's not working the. proof of that is 23 million people out of work and the proof one out of six people in poverty, the proof 32 million on food stamps to 47 million on food stamps the proof of that 50% of college graduates this year can't find work. >> paul: there's little doubt romney's commander performance helped the g.o.p. ticket. the question is, how much? let's ask wall street journal columnist and deputy editor dan henninger, mary anna stacia o'grady and kim strassel. dan, how important was this debate for mitt romney's candidacy. >> it was not only very important for mitt romney's candidacy, paul, it was very important for us. i think he both rescued his candidacy and rescued the election. and quite honestly, the election to this point was kind of boring. it was boring because both candidates in

,000 they survey the establishment survey it's called services and government is about 150,000 there is a lot of volatility. people going around saying this hasn't happened in 30 years. >> bill: in your opinion though, there are more jobs being added pushed from full time into part time. they are younger, less educated. unskilled. lower paying. >> if you are working part time you come off the unemployment rolls, that goes into the unemployment rate. that's a legitimate thing to talk about this is important. 14.7% unemployment when you include the marginally attached to the workforce. that is precisely the same number as the previous month. >> 14.7 when you say the people who don't have full-time jobs. >> >> don't have full-time jobs who have given up looking. >> do you know what i think is even more important than that? that income, household median income is now $5,000 since the president has been in office. because whether you have rising gas prices, rising health insurance prices, rising almost everything prices, all right, and then your income is going down because there aren't a lot of j
survey as it's called of businesses and government is about 150,000. and the survey of households is about 50,000. so there is a lots of volatility. there are people saying, this hasn't happened in 30 years -- nonsense. e >> in your opinion, there are more jobs being added. but most of these jobs are part-time jobs itch they are part-timions, people who have been pushed from full time into part time. they're younger, less educated and unskilled so they for lower paying. >> so if you are working part time and you come off the unemployment roles that, goes into the unemployment rate. that's legitimate. >> that's an important thing to talk about and is reveal audio in the u6 labor thing. 14.7% unemployment when you include the so-called marge neal attached to the workforce. that's precisely the same number as the previous month. >> 14.7, when you say... the people who don't have full-time jobs -- >> don't have full-time jobs who arev giving up. >> what is more important than that, the household median income is down $5,000. because when you have rising gas price, rising health insu
will continue to provide health care. the social contract has changed now that the government is involved. some math, our average cost for employee last year was roughly $10,000 and that's going up to roughly $12,000. so the economics are straight forward. if we move to everybody off the company plan and moved to the exchanges, we would save $1 million a year, extrapolate that to a thousand employees -- >> greta: but the problem with it is that, even if you would like to keep them publicly owned company, even if you would like to keep them and on and pay that, if you are publicly honed, you have a fiduciary duty not to squander the mon i, that's a problem. >> have you one or two rough quarter, advertising and marking are the first to be cut. now it will be health care, going forward. mckenzie does did a study that estimated that 30% of companies, when asked, were considering moving people backs to the exchanges. so there is 150 million americans that receive health care from their employer. imagine 50 million people dumped on the exchanges. >> greta: let me get this -- let me ask you. 19% next

to tell you the american people are engaged and if you think they want a government takeover of health care, i would respectfully submit you're not listening to them. >> so, will that experience help ryan thursday night? joining me now is presidential historian the author of the book "what does the president look like", jane, welcome. >> thanks for having me. >> clayton: what does paul ryan have to do. talking to huckabee about it. paul ryan can have a tendency to come off a little wonky and vice-president biden perhaps as a little folksy and flies off the handle with things off script. what do the two need to do to be effective. >> ryan needs to keep that momentum going and needs to explain their policies and their points of view in a very cheer, concise way, which you've heard him do in sound bites in different media interviews. biden, yes, needs to not make gaffe and make up for some of the mistakes his boss made last week, he needs to seem engaged. he needs to answer those hard questions without being defensive and so, they both have challenges going in, but it should ab really gre
agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes will cost 700,000 jobs. i will not raise taxes on small business and not raise taxes on middle income families. >> reporter: he will spend a little more time in florida and campaign here tomorrow and he has been doing a bit of debate prep with robhe senator from ohio and his debate sparring... playing the role of mr. obama and, monday, big foreign policy speech at the virginia military institute in virginia, and criticizing the president on foreign policy with specific criticisms of the way in which the administration handled the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, meant to signal romney will continue to attack the president on the economy, and jobs, but, also on foreign policy and all of the issues, of being commander-in-chief. in the 2012 campaign. >> arthel: thank you very much, a big crowd waiting for mitt r
on to fox news .com. >> the u.s. government has been aggressively looking into precisely what happened since september 11th when the attack occurred on benghazi or the consulate in benghazi so we have not been sitting around waiting for information to come to us. we have been actively chasing leads in various ways. >> i believe obviously what happened there was a tragic failure. there had been warnings of a possible attack. there were requests on the part of our commission there of our diplomats there tree have additional security forces. they were turned down. and then following the tragedy, we saw, well, misleading information coming from the administration and in fact the president didn't acknowledge that this was a terrorist act for, what, a week or two? i mean this was a terrorist attack. lives were lost. this happened on 9/11. candor andan dorland and transparently from the president and the administration and we didn't get it. >> geraldo: with congress in recess, the first debate focused on the economy, the question of whether the obama administration intentionally misled the american
to be what he did last night. this is trickle down government. the reason everything has gone wrong, the debt is high. the economy is struggling. unemployment is high is because is he a trickle down government guy. that's where he scored all his points. if he keeps it up with a barrage of that from here to election day, he wins. >> bill: all right. charles krauthammer, everyone. next on the run down, bob beckel one of the president's biggs supporters tell us how he saw it last night. later, megyn kelly and laura ingraham. kelly has some behind the scenes stuff. she is out in denver. is laura gloating today? we're coming right back. welcome aboard!
